E30 leather seat upholstery kit

Been thinking about making an E30 Seat Upholstery kit for sale to anyone who wants to order it. I just bought a set of e30 m3 seats, so I will have the patterns for the seats soon. I have been researching for over a year now, looking for the absolute best materials possible, using OEM when possible. The seat upholstery kits would be made out of texture, color and thickness matched Leather of a very high quility from germany. I can order this leather in any original BMW E30 color including cardinal red, black (anthrazite), pearl beige, natural, grey, and pacific blue to match your original interior as close as humanly possible (these materials have been out of production for years). I have ordered some of these leather and can send samples if requested to show how perfect the leather is matched to what was originaly used in your car. I am all about details, so everything will be like OEM. I'm very picky about every aspect of making an interior (I even measure the distance between each stitch so I use the correct setting on sewing machine when doing double top stich along seams, now thats perfection!) This kit will be far more "OEM" like than what you would get off ebay from, and much cheaper. From, an all leather kit like this is $1899.00, and from it is $2100.00 for the front seats and back seats. My kit will include everything down to GENUINE OEM BMW hog rings ordered from germany for only $999.99, ALL LEATHER (NO VINYL used). I have never seen a something of this extream quility for this cheap of price. I have got so I love doing upholstery, and am obsessive about everything being perfect down to the last detail. If I goof something goes in the garbage, I eat the cost of my mistake and I do it again (NO COVER UP'S). This kit will NOT include tools needed to install the kit. Simple tools such as wire cutters, hog ring pliers and an outward clinch staple gun are needed...which are all available online or at Home depot. If anyone is interested in something like this, let me know. So far I have seat patterns for E30 m3 recaro seats, E30 m3 rear seat (88-01 M3 specific). If this goes over well, I will be adding to the list of different years and models of seat patterns I have. Message me if interested, and Keep the E30 BMW alive
